Convert between Acre and other Area units.


What does an acre mean?

During middle ages, acre was first introduced but it's definition was not clear. It was defined as the amount of land plowed in one day by one man and an ox. No doubt that this definition can't be longer used as oxen don't work with the same rate.

Nowadays, Acre is a unit of area used commonly for measuring tracts of land which equals 43,560 square feet. We can say that the area of New York City is approximately 300,000 acres.
